Forbes Features Two Interviews With Global Health Leaders

Forbes features two interviews with global health leaders. Contributor Rahim Kanani spoke with Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI Alliance, about GAVI’s impact, innovation, public-private collaboration, and leadership and responsibility. In the interview, Berkley said vaccinating children not only protects them from disease, but it “protects families and whole communities. And it reduces ongoing health care costs, expands educational opportunities and creates a more reliable workforce. This, in turn, creates a more stable community, higher productivity and stronger national economies. Immunization provides an important foundation for political stability and economic growth” (10/4).

In another interview, contributor Terry Waghorn discusses the work of the Novartis Foundation for Sustainable Development with its chair, Klaus Leisinger. The foundation “works to alleviate poverty-related health problems in the developing world at three levels: on-the-ground assistance with health care services and medicine; connecting global health-advancing resources with each other and with those who can benefit from them; and conducting high-level research, policy and communication work to catalyze sustainable health outcomes,” according to Forbes (10/4).
